I would to thank those who have taken the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Thank you to all who have served, and continue to serve.
Hey! I hope everyone is having a fab day! If you had a long weekend, I’m sure it’s been amazing! I spent my weekend resting overall, I am still not feeling as well as I would like. My brain felt fried! I am having a hard time recovering overall in general! Which is odd for me!

Silo + Lunch-i-n + Friendship
Good Morning! I hope everyone is having an amazing Wednesday morning! Man, the school bus drivers in my subdivision are so ridic! I promise they leave their back up signal on with THE loudest noise for like a MILE! No need for an alarm clock! LOL!
N-E-way…..My girlfriends and I always make time to have lunch to catch up on LIFE! It’s nice to escape from whatever is going on in your world, and just unplug and talk. Everyone needs that! Our favorite place to go is Silo Elevate Cuisine! The food is amazing, and the service is always wonderful!
So, my girlfriends are all so intelligent, and are all super CREATIVE! Shannon is a teacher and her love for children shows! I see pictures of her in her teaching environment and she JUST fits! Teachers have to have love, and she definitely has it. It’s not something that can be taught. My girl can pretty much make, or create anything for use in the classroom. Some of her creations and ideas amaze me! Her and I love fashion, jewelry, makeup the whole 9! I love that I was able to meet her, and I know we will have a life long friendship!
Sabrina will be making a debut officially on L&E with some of her jewelry creations! Check out her necklace, isn’t it FAB! She makes some of the most gorgeous pieces! Sabrina told me she was an attorney once upon a time, but now enjoys owning her own businesses with her husband! I met Sabrina through Crossfit, and I know she is a lifetime friend! Follow her on instagram @noelleema !
Drum roll please……and then we have Jenn! Jenn has made the biggest transformation overall! She looks so different from when I first met her close to a year ago. A year ago, she wouldn’t have even entertained make-up! LOL! She has lost a good amount of weight, and looks amazing! So, GORGEOUS! I am so grateful for our friendship and know she will be a life long friend as well. Jenn is a Family Med Doctor who concentrates in Weight-Loss, and has recently started a business centered around weight-loss! Who better to get information from than a Doctor? Am I right? Follow her @slimtolive for fab recipes, health tips, and more!
This picture is the cutest! Have an amazing day babes!
Hot Pink + MCM
Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a FAB weekend! We hung out by the pool! It was my little babe Ashley’s birthday, she turned 12! I’m not sure if I have shared this…..but here it goes. I was married, and Ashley was my husbands daughter. I met her when she was tiny! I still remember her taking the ornaments off my my christmas tree every year. She was about 3 or 4. A few years ago he passed away in a private plan crash. I feel so blessed to be able to still have Ashley in my life. I love Ashely in every since of the word, and she still considers me to her step mom, and I still consider her to be my daughter. Her mother, and I have a great relationship, and can there is literally nothing I wouldn’t do for either one of them.
Soooo, about this little dress! Its so cute! I needed some brightness in my life, with all this rain! My goodness, it has been raining non-stop! Such a drag! We have some new subscribers so WELCOME! I came across this dress a while back when taking my son to get shorts for Spring. It was regular price, so I said NOPE! I’ll wait. I took him to American Eagle the other day, and we walked through Dillard’s, and this little beauty was on the 65% off RACK! YESSS!!!!!!! I paid $27 dollars or something like that! Made my day for sure! It’s the little things ya’ll! Enjoy your day babes! Be blessed!

Marc Fisher’s gorgeous wedges and espadrilles are all over #instagram as of late. I am in love with his Adalyn Espadrille Wedge ! Yes, it’s called an espadrille WEDGE! People annoy the shit out of me when they try and correct me when I call an something a wedge, or an espadrille! I know what I’m talking about. LOL! I was literally on a diet, and carrying a purse out of my mother’s womb! LOL!
N-E-Way, the Adalyn doesn’t look like it will be going on sale anytime soon. The neutral colors that is. I did see the pattern colors on sale, but I didn’t fancy those too much! Just being real! I bought another pair the other day out our pure depression. Or that’s what I told myself! LOL! Shit, all of these doctors appointments, and back and fourth are driving me bat shit yal’ll. No joke. I will be so happy when I can get back to some what of a normal life. It’s as if my life evolves around going on appointments, and it sucks! The only BS I need are bags and shoes….AM I RIGHT?!!!!!
The links to my Marc Fisher picks are below! If you don’t have a pair, you NEED a pair! Treat YO-SELF! Have a wonderful day Babes!
A-Line Skirt + Shake Your Shoulders
Hey! I hope everyone is doing well this Friday morning! I woke up with a large amount of weight lifted off of my shoulders! The VA finally approved, and authorized me to see a specialist who is LITERALLY the BEST! If anyone know’s anything about the VA system, getting an authorization to see an outside provider is like death…LOL. No, but seriously it is. I believe in the power of prayer, and God answered mine. More to come on that whole story later, I’m just happy that I am going to get the care that I need! My blog has be my savior! All of your wonderful comments, and words of encouragement mean the WORLD! My life is far from perfect, even though my Instagram feed makes it seem that way! Just keeping it 1000% LOL!!!!!
N-E-Way isn’t this little A-Line skirt the best! I have been holding on to it for a little while, and decided to pull it out, and wear it to brunch with the fam. I have to stop going out to eat, shit, its starting to show. Express had a ton of off the shoulder tops, I grabbed a few of them a while back when they were buy one get one 50% off.

Chambray Dress + Wedges
Hey! I hope everyone’s Wednesday is off to a fantastic start! I woke up to a bit of rain and thundering around 4-5am! Yikes! I am terrified of thunder! Okay, so these wedges are FAB! They are so comfy! I literally feel like I am walking on air, not that I know what that feels like…LOL! N-E-way, they are a favorite! And chambray is always a favorite! Am I right? This was the perfect little outfit for having lunch with my mom. I didn’t feel like doing much of anything, my mom gave me that little extra push i needed to get me out the door. My mom’s wisdom is always the best, and she is always so right. Have a great day babes!
Steve Madden + Platforms
Good Morning! I hope everyone is feel gorgeous this morning! So if you haven’t noticed, I have worn platforms in multiple post as of lately! They are so fun, and they make your legs look amazing! I am loving so many pairs per usual, that it is hard to keep count! I like to stay in the neutral family when it comes to shoes in general, but I am finding it hard to resist adding an animal print platform to my wardrobe! N-E-Way, step outside of your box, and give platforms a try. They are not killer on yo feet, and its something different other than wedges. I keep seeing wedges everywhere! I love a good wedge, but lets relax on the wedges a tiny bit…LOL! Some of my picks below are 50% OFF! Seriously a STEAL!
White Tank + Destroyed Denim Shorts
Good Morning! I hope everyone is fairing well on this lovely Monday morning! The fact that you woke up is a blessing in itself. As I sit here writing, I think about how much of a blessing my blog is to me. I have met so many amazing people, and I am beyond grateful from their friendship! Being the good blogger bee that I am, I actually set up an editorial calendar and took photo’s ahead of time. I knew that I would be recovering from surgery, and that the last thing I would want is a camera in my face…LOL! And no joke, I really do love taking photo’s and having fun with photo’s.It’s really therapeutic, and free.
Photography started off as a hobby of my son’s, and it grew from there. I always remind ya’ll to remember that my blog brings, positivity, and idea’s for fashion, health and wellness. I am far from perfect! There are days, where I am s-t-r-u-g-g-l-i-n-g, and have to force myself to get out of bed. Instagram, and Facebook are meant to show the pretty side of everything. Most people aren’t going to put their horrible photo’s on social media! Am I right?
N-E-Way, I’m still in recovery mode, but my OOTD is TDF! I love this little top! It is seriously THE cutest! I always size up in shorts, because it is not my intention to show the world all of my business! LOL! The links are below!
Enjoy your day babes!
Hey! I felt like a little motivational Monday was in order for today! I have shared some of my recent struggles with everyone over the past few blog post. Most people give up when things become challenging. Did you know that? Gym’s bank on people quitting every year at the because they know they won’t actually follow through, they will quit. And then they make a huge profit and don’t end up servicing all of those people who signed up for 1 or 2 year contacts. It took me over 2 years to get my first pull-up in Crossfit, but I kept trying. I didn’t quit even though it seemed impossible.
Never QUIT! If you quit, you will never know the outcome. When I started my blog, EVERYONE laughed and made fun of me. That didn’t matter. I am still here doing what I love to do, write, and bring awareness. It helps me is so many ways. I alway’s tell anyone in any sort of situation, that I will never give up, quit, or fail to fight. Especially if I feel really strongly about something. I may have to find different avenue’s, but I won’t ever not fight a good fight!
I have some major challenges ahead of me as it relates to my health. I could cry in a corner, or I can do something about it, and get healthy. I choose to be proactive, and to be healthy for my family.
Have a happy Monday!
